    I currently have a 16GB silver 5S and I cannot decide if I want to upgrade or not. I would like to have more storage and the new design is nice but I buy unlocked so after I sell my 5S I would still be spending around $400 for the 6. Have any of you upgraded to the unlocked 6 from the 5S?

    I did. I still have my iPhone 5s, 64GB. I got the iPhone 6, 128GB and just exchanged for the 6 Plus, 128GB.

    For me, the iPhone 6 had the same footprint as my iPhone 5s in its LifeProof nuud case.

    I went from the 5S to the 6, love the bigger screen and the new thinner form factor. Definitely a worthwile upgrade in my opinion. and I went from 32gb to 64gb for the same price so that was nice too

    I went from a 16GB 5s to a 64GB 6, and then returned it. Other than screen size and storage, there weren't enough changes for me to justify the $400 cost. Not to mention, once putting a case on the 6, it became very awkward to use one handed, and I've got quite large hands (but I'm a lefty, making the power button a pain).

    I've had the 4, 4S, 5, and now 5s, and always been able to justify the upgrade, even paying full cost every time. Just can't seem to do it this time.

    I upgraded to the 6. Apple Pay, screen size and the improved camera were deciding factors.

    I did... I was in the same boat... 16gb has become like living in a 4' X 4' room. It's really cramped for my usage so I traded my 5S in for the 64gb 6. Pricing has FINALLY come down on the storage for iDevices so it's a better deal and my logic is that right now is the most you will ever be able to sell your 5S for so unless you want to live cramped with 16gb for another year and wait for the 6S you might as well trade up now.

    Also LOVE the larger screen and thinner profile too!

    Yes I did and I love the little bigger screen on the 6. I've had every phone since the 3GS and this 6 is my favorite so far.

    Coming from a 5, my favorite 6 feature is the Touch ID.

    So take that for what it's worth.
